By default on OS X bash is not setup to source any completion files.

You can manually source the completion file from your startup file, e.g. 
in `~/.bash_profile` you can add:

	if [[ -e /path/to/bash-completion ]]; then
	  . /path/to/bash-completion

Though consider going with a package manager like homebrew or MacPorts, 
these come with much newer versions of bash, and at least for homebrew, 
if you install `pass` via this package manager, it also installs the 
bash completions.
